Periphery

Under a tangled sky, cloud shadows skimming by
With a fragile veil of jasmine on the air
Where a curve of moon stirs the heart in its cocoon
And a lover’s dream awakens like a prayer

How dim these colors, how dull those stars
How slow the turning of the tide
What eludes these others – no song like ours!
A whispering, a mystery, a rumor out on the periphery
And no one understands what’s going on
‘Cuz when you look directly, then it’s gone

Down crooked avenues, every footfall that you choose
With nothing but a heartbeat as your guide
In another guise, passion waiting to arise
From the ashes of the quiet spark inside

How dim these colors, how dull those stars
How slow the turning of the tide
When we exclude each other – no song like ours!
A whispering, a mystery, a rumor out on the periphery
And no one’s ever sure what’s going on
‘Cuz when you look directly, then it’s gone

And so you draw the curtain, to gaze before the mirror
At a fairy-wish that never touches ground
Where once you were so certain, your assumptions disappear
And you wonder if your soul is lost or found

How dim these colors, how dull those stars
How slow the turning of the tide
What includes these others - to know a song like ours!
A whispering, a mystery, a rumor out on the periphery
And never will you know what’s going on
‘Cuz when you look directly, then it’s gone – it’s gone
‘Cuz when you look directly, then it’s gone
